  FLASH, the Free-Electron Laser at DESY in Hamburg was the first FEL user facility in the XUV and soft X-ray range. The superconducting RF technology allows to produce several thousand SASE pulses per second with a high peak and average brilliance. It developed to a user facility with a 1.25 GeV linear accelerator, two undulator beamlines running in parallel, and a third electron beamline containing the FLASHForward plasma wakefield experiment. Actual user operation and FEL research are discussed. New concepts and a redesign of the facility are developed to ensure that also in future FLASH will allow cutting-edge research. Upgrade plans are discussed in the contribution.
